Remember how I said that summer was about to kick into full gear? I hope when you see the dust and cobwebs accumulating here you picture me outside enjoying the sunshine. :)
But I did steal a little time yesterday to work on a crafty project. And in the process learned a new photoshop trick. My G-Maffia sister in the bond, Angela at Mom-E-Memoirs, gets a gold star for pointing me in the right direction via her blog. Angela got the step by step photoshop instructions from the blog of a super talented lady, Jessica Sprague. I'm not going to re-key them, because it seems like Jessica should get all the proper credit. But if you want to make your photos pop too, check out these Photoshop and Photoshop Elements friendly instructions at the Sprague Lab Blog
Here is my before photo - taken in July of 2006 at Pike's Market in Seattle. I have always liked this photo, so how cool that I get to make it better!!
And here is my after photo - it was so easy to make this more vibrant!
Woohoo! I'm one step closer to overcoming my Photoshop ignorance. Thanks for the link Ang!
And here's a little peek at my crafty project...It's going to be an ABC book for Sweet Pea. I wanted to have it done for her birthday but stalled after only getting 9 letters done. It's back on top of my artsy priority list now.
